Stabilization of collective motion on a sphere

  title={Stabilization of collective motion on a sphere},
  author={Derek A. Paley},
We provide a Lyapunov-based design of decentralized control laws that stabilize relative equilibria in a model of self-propelled particles that travel on the surface of a sphere. Such control lawshave applications in planetary-scale mobile sensing networks in air, sea, and space. Relative equilibria of the closed-loop model include formations inwhich all of the particles travel around a common circular trajectory. Particle interaction can be time-invariant or time-varying and directed or… CONTINUE READING
